Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration created a nationally heralded blueprint five years ago to steer the city toward a more sustainable future.

The mayor now says the city is on track to meet all the goals set forth in that plan.

A new report shows that the city has made significant progress on 100 of the 132 initiatives outlined in the city’s PLaNYC blueprint for sustainability.

The initiatives touch on areas including transportation, parks and open space and housing.

The report highlights last month’s launch of Citi Bike, which is the largest bike share program in the nation; the addition of 300 acres of new parkland; and the rezoning of 119 neighborhoods to allow taller buildings for housing or office space and to create pedestrian plazas.

Read or download the 2013 progress report that was released earlier today.
